HIRSCH EQUAL TO IT REPIBLICANS INFORMALLY ASK FOR SPEECH AXD «0T (JOOD ONE. Told Sonte Excellent Reasons Why iteiiuhlicans Should Remain in Power. l>i. I". II. Hirsh,.Jhe well known lola citizen, was passing the Republicaii headquarters on West Madison street aslj night about S:;50. The grapho- jihnne was going and he stopped to lis ten to the songs and "canned" si)eech- es. \V. T. Watson looked out and. seeing the doctor, invited him in. Dr. Hirsh was in a hurry to get to his office and hesitated several seconds, de- ))ating as to whether or not he should, accept the invitation. He .finally yield cd and took a seat with the others. WTien the song closed some one called for a speech from the doctor. It was not a formal meeting, a nuni- 'H -r »'f voters merely dropping in as ;hfy p;tssfd by, but thi» cry of "Dr. Uirsh. a si'coch. a speech," was taken up. sat in his .-sent a few minutes.

' • • ^ Eastcni investors claim it is only right that if they risk the greater pro- IKirtion of the investment in building the road, the local people along the line should make at least a small ln -1 vestment in the project as a matter of good faith. The preferred stock win draw (! per cent per annum and win carry with it as a stock bonus one-half as uiueli common *tock which It Is estimated will pay not less than 3 or 4 iwr cent, dividends from the start,- thus making the preferred stock a profltahie and safe investment for all concerned. The Inclosed statement of estimated oarniti ?s' was based on an issue oi llo .tXMi.OOO in bonds, wiih fixed charges at JSOO.OtH): while under the r\res- ent |)Ian the charges will amount to »53B.50fl or Just J36.55(t more per annum. This amount deducted from the net sundus. as estimated in the state ment enclosed of $423,516 would leave $386,966 available for dividends from yie first year. ' • It is now up to the people of the various towns to decide whether ot not they want a road built, and if they do. let them give pledges for subscriptions for the amount named for your city, the money- to be deposited in yonriocal bank and tojbe used only in bBildiBg in your localities and even theHAUy as the eastprh investor puts up the remainder of tie amount necessary lor the work inltfcat- locality.

He said that as the time was drawing n^ar when the voters of the countrj". were to decide what |iolicy_ should rule this country for anot)ier four years it behooved every man fo relied upon the needs of the countr.v. In a few terse puinied sentences, filled with statistics, he told of the progress of the country 'during the past forty years, the most of which time was during Republican rule. He then put the question: Shall all of this growth, this |iroBi)erity. this civilisation bo turn down and repudiated by a change in party power?" H P then directed his attention to the laboring man, totd of the advance in his wage;*, ot the comforts he now enjoys, the high esteem in which he Is held by the American people and cautioned him to ihiiik long and. deeply before he cast Ijis v<ito for Uryan. He pointed out t<i them what the radical position of the .Vobraskan as to the coniiol of alleged corporations and railways would mean in the way of throwing thousunds of working men out of employment, Diiriug his remarks Dr. Hirsh co :i- fessed that he was guilty of the un- (tardonuble' sin,—he voted for Kryan once. "Hut it was" when Bryan was advocating free silver and I was in the silver mining business In Colorado." added Dr. Hirshj with a laugh. . He closed his impromptu remarks by saving that sure'.y if the laboring man' reflected upon ail of these things when, he entered the election booth this fall he would say ".My vote shall go for Taft." \Mien the doctor took his seat it was in,the midst of a loud cheerin^i and sincere applause.
